Overview

Fitness centers and home gyms are full of frustrated exercisers seeking a lean and strong physique. Building Strength and Stamina provides the tools to get results in just 30 minutes a day! One of the nation's leading strength experts shows the most effective way to gain strength and endurance while burning excess body fat.

People who have followed this program typically increased their strength by about 50% after just two months, and they achieved better results than they did with either strength or endurance training alone. The evidence is clear: Building Strength and Stamina is a powerful and efficient tool for anyone who works out regularly.

Updated with a full complement of free weight exercises, this new edition provides exercises and programs to target all the major muscle groups, develop high-intensity workouts, and make the best use of equipment at home or in the gym. Building Strength and Stamina includes circuit training and two- and six-month training programs to meet the toughest training goals.

This proven program is based on the same principles used in the conditioning programs of 10 NFL teams. With new free weight exercises, this edition now appeals to more readers. Now fitness enthusiasts can maximize their use of free weights and machines at home or at the local club to achieve explosive gains. For a leaner and stronger body in less time, there is no better guide than Building Strength and Stamina.

"Wayne has written a terrific book. He explains in layman's language how and why to exercise with weights, yet he still gives cardiovascular exercise its due. The new free weight exercises make this second edition a more complete training guide and a welcome addition to any enthusiastic exerciser's library."

From Road Race Management Newsletter
The programs are uncomplicated, and the instructions for the multitude of Nautilus and free weight exercises are succinct. Explanatory text is remarkably thorough, but concise enough that it won't cut into valuable running time.
